About Us

School of Energy Resources

 

Mission

The mission of the School of Energy Resources is to promote development of the human resources and know-how required to solve critical energy challenges faced by society. SER shall strengthen the significant talent and resources at the University of Wyoming and promote interdisciplinary academic, research, and outreach programs in engineering, science, economics, and environmental policy to achieve the vision - that Wyoming fulfills its promise to be a global leader in building a secure and sustainable energy future.

Overview of SER

SER Strategic Plan

Energy programs at UW are focusing investment in three key areas over the next five years:

  • Exploiting unconventional reservoirs that contain resources that do not flow at economic rates or produce economic volumes of oil and natural gas without stimulation or other recovery processes and technologies.
  • Climbing the value chain by creating essential consumer products such as fuels, petrochemicals and electricity by refining, conversion and other manufacturing activities that add value to energy resources that are now sold as commodities, and finding new markets for them.
  • Developing wind and solar energy technologies that improve efficiency, mitigate the impacts of variable supply and convert output of renewable energy resources to higher-value products.

Administration and Organization

  • University of Wyoming Board of Trustees establishes the structure and policies for operation of SER and shall engage as many of the other academic departments and colleges of the university as possible in support of the school.
  • University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council (ERC) provides direction to the SER regarding identifying and prioritizing issues which should be targeted for research and outreach. The ERC consists of 11 members, including the UW President and the Director of Ruckelshaus Institute (ex officio); one member each of the Wyoming Senate and House; and seven members representing diverse components of Wyoming's energy industries appointed by the Governor, at the consent of the senate, for 3-year terms. The ERC meets at least quarterly and is staffed by SER. The UW Board of Trustees assigned a trustee to sit on the ERC as ex officio on March 4, 2011. This assignment was at the invitation of the ERC and will allow for greater communication between the two entities.
  • The SER Director is hired by UW in consultation with the ERC and reports to the UW Provost. Legal advice and representation is provided by the UW General Counsel. All policies and procedures are followed per UW regulations. There are three deputy directors reporting to the director leading SER's academics, research and outreach efforts. Twelve faculty positions are funded by SER; the faculty are jointly appointed in SER and in their home departments.
  • Centers of Excellence are created to foster interdisciplinary research within broad program areas. Center directors are responsible to the SER director regarding matters of the Centers.
